Black Mambooza makes mesmerizing music that resuscitates the tradition of cranked-up, melodic rock n' roll. Fronted by lead vocalist Peppermont and intensified by fellow dynamos Jesus Texas (guitars/vocals), Chazz Zee (bass/keys/vocals) and Sueperman (drums/percussion), the band produces songs that feature complex instrumental passages and crafty lyrics, expressing the exhilaration of lust, darkness and heartbreak.
The soul of Black Mambooza was originally inspired by the concept of "mambooza" - a kabalistic word the members interpret as "a musical jambalaya/potpourri," which captures the spirit of the many different style influences that make up the signature Black Mambooza sound.
The four officially formed as Black Mambooza in 2008. During the past five years, Black Mambooza has played both nationally and internationally with legends such as The Scorpions, Tesla, Vince Neil, Night Ranger, and Whitesnake, and they have performed for audiences of thousands at festival shows including the M3 Rock Festival, SXSW, and the Sunset Strip Music Festival. In 2012, Black Mambooza went on a successful tour of the U.S., but always enjoys coming back home to L.A. to perform for their hometown fans and followers.
